Purple & Brown



These are the characters I spent a week in Bristol helping out with.
They are voiced by the Creator Rich Webber(I hope that is with two B's) and Mike Percival a.k.a. Percy.
Two nicer and talented chaps you'd be hard pressed to find.
If they are reading this, Thanks again mates!
More latter, I have to jump into a SpongeBob Meeting.

Enjoy

Looks like fun! What exactly did you do? I know you're sworn to secrecy, but dammit, I don't come here for the SpongeBob stuff... I come for the art!

And any residual Ren and Stimy / Bakshi stuff that might be lying around, I'll scoop that up.

Glad you had fun.

Cheers!

Man, I've only watched a few minutes of this and I'm already passing out from laughing so hard.

If I wasn't working right now I'd watch through the whole thing. Definitely doing that when I get home!!!

It's definitely English, that's for sure! Vincent, what exactly did you get do do on this? I bet it was a blast.

I didn't do anything on the shorts that I've posted. Those bits owe their hilarity to the mind of Rich, helped out by the comedy stylings of his cohort Percy. A terrific team, they are.
Rich voices Purple and Percy voices Brown.
It was a lot of fun working with them and their team.
I helped out with some timing and gagging things up a bit, in their transition from shorts to an Eleven minute format.

That's awesome I've always liked these guys. Any tips on how they're done? I mean I know it's clay but it's so smooth and they seem like such long takes.

Vincent Waller said...

No secret really, they use Plasticine rather than clay. Well, there very well might be secrets. But they didn't share them if there are. Putting saran wrap over your figures to keep the duct off between takes is about the only thing I picked up while touring Aadrman. It looked like someone was trying to suffocate poor Wallace on several of the scene set ups.Him patiently waiting with plastic wrap on his head.

I found a site with a little background on Rich Webber the creator.

Hey, what gives? This would play on my shitty PC at work, but why won't it work for my brilliant Mac?

I mean, the PC's shitty. SUPER shitty. What the heckfire?

Hey Trevor,
I don't know. I only have a Mac, and it plays on mine.

Maybe its having trouble with the link. If you go straight to Google video or Youtube and search Purple and Brown you should be able to see them over there.

Actually, the Mac had been on consecutively for three days. Time to restart.

Thanks, Vincent!

I have never encountered more jolly organisms. I think you have found a new pathology. On the other hand, they seem pretty well adjusted.

Good claymation on the adam's apple swallowing.

Aw wow I love purple and brown. My favourite is when brown is chewing gum and makes a bubble by farting one out!
There's a guy from my uni who has worked on that too. Really really great shorts!

Holy Shhhhhhhhh...shoeleather! You worked at...*awe* *quiver*...AARDMAN ANIMATION!?! And you got to meet Wallace and Gromit!? Damn! I am jealous.

First Ren & Stimpy, then Spongebob, now Aardman! All you need to do now is work for Pixar for my jealousy of your career to be complete.
